The 7th grade class at Libby Middle School took a pledge to graduate high school at the seventh annual I Pledge to Graduate breakfast May 23.

The event is hosted and funded by the middle school’s Gear Up program.

“Family, friends and LMHS teachers and staff attended the breakfast, which was provided by Central School staff, to witness and celebrate this important step that the students took towards their future,” according to a release from the school.

Deanna Malyevac, Gear Up liaison, talked to students about what it means “to make a commitment and take a pledge.”

Liz Marty, assistant Gear Up liaison, spoke about the Gear Up program, and was followed with speeches from the Libby High School junior class, as well as from Libby alumna Katie Pfeifer, according to the release.

Libby junior Ryan Goodman led the middle school students through the pledge to graduate.

After filling out their pledge cards, students were called to walk across the stage to applause, and they received a 21st Century Certificate with information about some of the many options available to pay for college, according to the release.

They also received an “I Pledge to Graduate 2024” t-shirt and lanyard from Gear Up, and took individual photos and a class photo with their shirts on and pledge cards and certificates in hand.
